How I spent, last weekend – #HASHTAGHUMPDAY Confessions

The countdown to November FoodFest is on! Oh, sorry. Thanksgiving. The countdown to Thanksgiving is on. Wrapping up my pre-holiday week with Life with Lolo for #HASHTAGHUMPDAY and Alanna & Company for Humpday Confessions. Let's do this!     Speaking of food, I must confess that my recent picks for dining out have been woefully off the mark. Last Friday night, Tall Guy ...

Maybe I’ll open an Etsy shop

I've just returned from getting a haircut. My stylist, Brittany, is fabulous. She's been with me since a very unfortunate incident approximately four years ago.
